Johann Stumpf (1500–1578) was an early writer on the history and topography of Switzerland. He was born at Bruchsal, and was educated there and at Strasbourg and Heidelberg.

He was sent in 1521 to the preceptory of that order at Freiburg in Breisgau, ordained a priest at Basel, and in 1522 was placed in charge of the preceptory at Bubikon. More information...
